Yes you can. Have worked with a very talented VM who was flying up through the Ranks, was a pot Tiffy. Funny as hell trying to decipher his scrawl. Would of made a good tiffy as well. Decided to go CP in the sand pit. A sad loss to the REME.

I have crossed paths with a few during my time.

Was quite shocked when trying to get one of them to complete a manual next of kin and the soldier telling me that he couldn't write so could I fill it in for him

I asked how he managed to get through the careers office and his reply was that the recruiting sgt wrote everything for him

He wasn't the brightest soldier, but by no means the dullest either.

I would have thought that being AGC would have suited him down to the ground considering the number of illiterates in the Corps nowadays !!

Not only can you join, but increasingly military training centres are learning to provide specialist assessments for trainees diagnosed with dyslexia, helping them to find coping mechanisms that will allow them to achieve their full potential.

Like civilian examinations, most military technical qualifications that have a written theory exam will allow the use of coping mechanisms and/or a viva voce, as well as giving dyslexic trainees additional time to complete exams.

In addition, the increasing professionalization of military training means that many training centres now have permanent staff trained in the identification and assistance of dyslexic trainees.

i am very please the miltary have all these provisions in place for your people .

text help read and write is a very good program, is excellant for reading and writing skills
also insperations for mind map`s.

also a major problem is the via voice software so that your people is able to dicatate there exam`s it takes lot`s of practice and also a lot of these software are very senseative to people accent`s.

also a digital tape recorder is excellant because where a student does thing sometimes at a slower pace , you can tape the lecture`s and tutorial`s and the transfer them to the computer in a written format via omin page PRO OCR.

kindest regards

I remember a Cpl in Germany many years ago who was illiterate, and as a young LCpl I had to fill out the guard report. He never made Sgt, but was a good NCO nevertheless.

Now, in the TA, I have a Postman on the books who is dyslexic. I often wonder what happens on his round - do people arrange to swop letters after he's gone? This disability hasn't stopped him doing a good job in his Trade with us, though, including on Ops.

Come to think of it, perhaps most postmen are dyslexic. That would account for a lot of things...

Well, fcuking excuse me for giving a sensible question a sensible answer instead of just taking the fcuking pi$$. I was under the impression that people posted questions here in the hope of finding a subject-matter expert to answer them, Sloberdan, you tw*t.
